The last lines of the first act of the play The King In Yellow are mentioned, though not quoted directly in The Repairer of Reputations: the character Hildred Castaigne "...remembered Camilla's agonised scream and the awful words echoing through the dim streets of Carcosa. They were the last lines of the first act". It is possible that this refers to the bitter cry of Cassilda as quoted in The Mask, although it could also refer to the line "I wear no mask".

Compare opening words of the second act.
